Drupal is one of the most secure CMS systems. When regularly updated, it is exceptionally resistant to hacker attacks. Safety is essential for a higher education website as it processes thousands of sensitive data regarding students, employees, and payments.


Each day, hundreds of students visit higher education websites. The amount rapidly increases during recruitment periods. Many systems are unable to handle such traffic. When installed on a high-quality server, Drupal guarantees exceptional efficiency.


Universities and colleges often extend their offer and add enhancements to encourage as many candidates as possible. As a scalable CMS, Drupal provides nearly unlimited development possibilities, including new subpages or extension additions.


Studying abroad gains popularity from year to year. Thus, it is crucial to have a multilingual higher education website. Then, you can reach a broader target group. Drupal is an ideal CMS for education website design providing advanced content management options from one administration panel for all website versions.

Well-designed higher education websites offer straightforward login processes to particular systems e.g., assuring access to all platforms using one user account. Higher education website design should provide separate login options, e.g. for students and academic employees.
